settle the stupid fiscal cliff? washington, i want you to tell that to these guys. to their face, without their helmets on. i dare you. and tomorrow, i dare all of washington to not get something done while i'm there in the flesh. whether a superhero or astronaut wannabe because we're down there with a live show with john mccain, chris van hollen, marco rubio, many others. at the white house, everywhere, because we figure this matters to you.

fiscal cliff now for months. we had a budget melt down a year and a half ago when the debt ceiling debate came. we talked about many times the uncertainty that faces manufacturers. you can't make investment decisions on long-term capital expenses for that will be paid off over years if you don't know what the government is going to be taken from you from taxes or higher energy costs. manufacturers are really trying to figure out what is next? what is on the horizon. they need certainty and they need positive certainty that whatever happens on the fiscal cliff is not going to impact them in a very negative way. >> what if it is a bad deal though? we talked about one disproportionately skewed in higher taxes. sometimes i think and i could be out to lunch on this that a bad deal would be worse than a no deal. >> see, i tend to agree with you. when you talk about certainty there is also as you just pointed out bad certainty. you don't want to have that. and when some folks in washington are talking about raising individual tax rates, what they are really saying is we are going to raise

the fiscal cliff and the debt goes from $16 trillion to $20 trillion a couple years down the road to $25 trillion. nothing changes in washington, dc. you tax. you still spend. maybe it is time to take the medicine congressman and go over the fiscal cliff and fix the problem. >>guest: there is no fiscal cliff. there is a fiscal slope. the earth doesn't stop spinning, the sun will come up, the moon will come up and we will have to do things in john. taxes will go up and the democratic party and hopefully some responsible republicans will vote to make certain that we remove this tax cut that would take place. >>eric: no talk about responsible democrats to stop spending so were, or cut back the spending, not just cutting back the increase rate in spending but item spending cuts. >>guest: the rate of increase doesn't have anything to do with the spain people are suffering whether they are middle class or poor. we were talking about the so-called fiscal cliff, if that happens, automatically taxes are going to go up for everyone. maybe, then, someone would ask, who was it that said we shouldn't just pass the tax cuts to make certain that
